Sheila Reed

Director of Trade shows & Events


For some writers it began with poems, song lyrics or nursery rhymes. With Sheila, her passion for writing started when she received a diary as a gift. Even at the age of 8, she knew there was something special and lasting about inking her thoughts onto paper. In 2011, it was an internship with Branding Iron where she found her career path­. One that allowed her to use the journalistic writing style that she developed under the tutelage of Scott Emerine. Her degree in communications and her background in event planning are now paying off. She’s quickly winning over Branding Iron clients due to her marketing, public relations and trade event planning capabilities. When she’s not in the office, she can be seen walking at the dog park with her dog, Luna. Sheila always keeping projects in motion and makes sure things run smoothly for clients at major events and shows around the world.

Tim Rhea

Studio Artist



Tim tunneled out of East Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and has been applying his skills since Thirtysomething was still on the air. Notorious for his patience and attention to detail, Tim is known to perform graphic design under a microscope, thus causing many a multi-page layout to tap-out in submission. When he’s not out on a ledge, you can find Tim under the hood of any nearby Mac, meditating to chanting monks or fine tuning the effectiveness of the Spock nerve pinch.
